    Arbans is a "conservatory method" and was intended to be dosed by the trumpet instructor. The exercizes are grouped by type, not by lesson plan. There is everything from the first few notes to the physically impossible.

    I can't seem to find a copy of Dauverne's book lying around.... What struck you most about the difference between it and Arban's - a lot of emphasis on how to hit the valves?

    That's my impression. The "My First Arban" book (they have them for all kinds of brass) is just paying the $7 or $8 for a certain "dosing".

    That kind of argues towards getting the big book, since I can look at something and tell if it's in my range, and from the description tell what it's supposed to teach me.

    I dunno .... I'm sure to get one or the other next time I'm in town! :dontknow: :lol:

    :cool: The Dauvernè was written from a natural trumpeter's viewpoint. A fun link: François Dauverné

    Have fun!

    Hand-stopping for trumpet! I knew somebody must have done it (I haven't had any luck with it, myself).

    I got the My First Arban book - they didn't have the thick one.
